More About MeOn a personal level per those who know me best - I am kind, soft-hearted, compassionate, loyal, generous, gregarious, thoughtful. On a professional level per those who know me best - I am thoughtful, energetic, supportive, smart and forward thinking, fun to work for and always a coach and mentor, and most importantly a fair leader. I take my work very seriously - however, I am not so ego driven as to not realize that it is the 'team that makes the dream work'.
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesSpare time is sparce; however I love to read, excercise, entertain my friends, concerts with friends, take 'spur of the moment road trips' in my convertible, hang out with my "Ya-Ya Sisters", spend time with my God Children (I have 8 wonderful ones), play tennis, and sometimes just chill with a good glass of wine and a homecooked meal for just me.
Political AffiliationNever talk politics on the first date!
Who I Would Like to MeetA successful person professionally and personally. Someone who can stimulate my mind and body. A person that does not take themselves so seriously that they cannot adapt or ‘go with the flow’. Believes that life is too short not to live it to the fullest. Respects that our opinions will not always coincide and has the fortitude/compassion to understand this. Has the ability to easily integrate himself into my world as I would honor the same.

Friday or Saturday Nights IThat varies with regard to my work. Either at one of my restaurants or out to dinner with friends. Depending on the work week - it may be in my pj's watching old sitcoms and just chilling with a glass of VERY good wine and my cats.
Life GoalsWell, I can honestly say that I have met most of my goals and aspirations...I travle at will, I have a great network of friends and family, I have a job that I love and am a partner in and, therefore, my aspiration would be to travel to where I have never been before. To continue to learn as much as I can regarding what I do so that I can be the best at what I do and to enhance any relationship that I have the privilege of encountering.
